You know what the dream for laptop gamers is? It's to have a laptop that comes close to PC performance. We all knew it was coming with tech getting better, faster, and smaller all the time. We just didn't know when.
That is, until the Nvidia GTX 1080. Enter the Razer Blade Pro - as close to a high end gaming PC you can get in a laptop form factor under an inch thick.
The Razer Blade Pro packs an Intel i7... Read more

Ever heard of a gaming company called Gamdias? Well, don't beat yourself up if you haven't. But it would be your fault to not check them out now that you have. They're probably the best gaming peripheral company that you've never heard before. Linus actually thinks they're innovative enough to have their own niche in the world.
They've come out with some pretty interesting stuff. I'm actually kinda sad that I've never caught wind of them before. Their Hermes Ultimate keyboards... Read more

Check out the new Razer Kraken V2s, you guys. They look glorious.
The new Razer Krakens feature larger 50mm custom-tuned drivers for game sounds and communication balance, a unibody frame (this is a plus!), and redesigned ergonomics.
The 50mm drivers are larger than any of those found in previous Krakens, which they claim should give a wider frequency range, improving balance between in-game audio and communications.

The PlayStation VR is about to launch in a few days. And what's weighing on the mind of everyone who has pre-ordered a PSVR and those on the fence about buying one is if there will be enough software to support the device. it's always a question of whether there will be enough killer apps on a device before it becomes viable. While I'm not 100% sure about which game will be the game for PSVR, I do know that some... Read more

The best controller, at least for me, is the Dualshock 4. It just fits my hands just right. So even on PC games, I always used the Dualshock 4. Unfortunately, Sony never really officially supported the DS4 for Steam games. And why would they? It's not their platform, after all.
When the official USB wireless dongle for the Dualshock 4 was announced, I was stoked! Could this be it!? Could this be Sony officially supporting the Dualshock 4 on the PC?... Read more

Quick - what's one of the best things about putting together a PC? If you said "the colorful lights," then you'd be right. My PC build is named Kobalt, and I made sure to outfit him with all blue LEDs. I even thought of picking up some LED strips to illuminate the inside of the case, too. Good thing I like blue lights, though, because I'm stuck with them. If only there was a way I could change the LED... Read more

Right now, the mouse I use is the Logitech G502 Proteus. This is only because I had to give up my 2013 Razer DeathAdder because of the somewhat prevalent double clicking issue. It was the only thing (well 1 of 2 things - more on that later) that kept it from the perfect gaming mouse. And now, the best gaming mouse is getting a major upgrade.
Razer just announced the Razer DeathAdder Elite.

I've been getting hit by ads for Paladins almost everywhere I go. I got curious and looked it up. First thing I noticed is that the character designs are actually quite similar to Overwatch, in both the character archetype and the skills. And then a few days later, Hi-Rez Studios states that Paladins is NOT an Overwatch clone. Because of all of that drama, I decided to give Paladins a try and see it for myself.
According to Hi-Rez studios COO... Read more

The quick answer to that question is "it depends." There are a number of criteria that have to be fulfilled before I can say that "yes, the PS4 Pro is a good buy for you."
Let's start with the basics. What can the PS4 Pro do that the regular PS4 can't? In a nutshell, the PS4 Pro upscales your PS4 games to 4K resolution and improves gaming performance, pretty much. The Pro's GPU is 128% more powerful than the vanilla PS4... Read more

When I put Kobalt together, I did so with the express intention of overclocking. I knew nothing about it. I had no experience in it. I just knew I wanted to do it.
I bought a 6600K and a all-in-one Corsair H80i GT Hydro Series CPU cooler, and then studied all I could about it. And I guess this shows obvious lack of forethought on my end because Kobalt was supposed to end up in a Cougar QBX, a teeny tiny pouch... Read more

On July 30, the announced that the PlayStation VR was going to be on display for trial at SM Megamall, at the Sony Store, starting July 31. I immediately made plans to go. I needed to experience VR for the first time, even if I'd be watched by dozens of people.

It's the same old story every time a new highly anticipated movie or game or TV show comes out. Despite multiple warnings on Facebook and Twitter accounts and multiple unfollowed former friends, people are going to post details or tell revealing in-jokes which can be considered spoilers. Stories and experiences get ruined, egos inflate, defenses go up, and friendships end.
There are many reasons why people spoil things. It can be because some don't know what constitutes as a spoiler. Others... Read more
